From Twilight to Breaking Dawn: Religious Themes in the Twilight Sagaby Sandra L. Gravett

Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling Twilight saga took the young adult fiction world by storm. Although by no means dominant or even particularly overt, Meyer’s use of religion nonetheless provides for some intriguing interpretive possibilities. Topics from young love, to abstinence, to the value of family and friends are infused in the stories. Love as an agent of change and a motivational impulse for self-sacrifice also receives significant emphasis. Could Eve and Mary be a pattern for Bella? What about Edward- could he be seen as a Christ-figure?
